The Homeowners’ Guide to Financial Literacy

What Does Financial Literacy Have to Do with Homeownership?

Housed at the UCI Paul Merage School of Business, the Center for Investment and Wealth Management (CIWM) provides discussion, study and application of financial education for all.

And given that homeownership is perhaps the single largest financial investment a Southern California resident will make, CIWM Faculty Director Christopher Schwarz, Ph.D. explores how and why Orange County housing is expensive but not in a bubble. 

Dr. Schwarz also is the associate professor of finance at The Paul Merage School of Business. His research interests include the management, disclosure and operational risk of the investment fund industry as well as the impact of manager incentives and structure on investment fund performance. His research has been published in leading academic journals such as the Journal of Finance, Journal of Financial Economics, Review of Financial Studies, and the Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis, and includes testimony before the U.S. Congress House Financial Services Committee.
